As the Senate looks to tackle gun control issues, 55 percent of those surveyed said it is “possible to make gun laws without interfering with gun rights,” while 38 percent said such measures “always interfere with the right to own guns.” Eighty-six percent of those surveyed said they would support background checks conducted on those purchasing guns at gun shows and online.

The survey of 1,003 adults was conducted April 11-14 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points.

Off year for the Yankees. I'm undergoing cataract surgery. Left eye was done last wednesday, right eye scheduled for the 24th. Eye surgeon had an off day last wednesday and put a 2mm scratch in my cornea. It's like sand in your eye and you can't flush it, can't rub it, and can't use anestetic eye drops.

Both grandkids are here today. A new grandson due later this month.

Sure you will, just like you did in Benghazi?

Full weight of justice under Obama???
Domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh was convicted 675 days after the Oklahoma City bombing.
It's been 1258 days since the Fort Hood shootings and Nidal Malik Hasan has not been tried yet?
Is this the justice Obama is talking about?

<quoted text> I'm quite sure you know that you & I never agree, but I'm on the same shit you are on. Whomever was responsible did some dumshit. Doesn't matter their political affiliation, color, or religion. You got the ass end of the conversation. I was simply stating the culture of America has changed forever & it has nothing to do with Obama. The American people are living in a time of hysteria, all cause by their own minds. Regardless of the political preference, the people guilty of yesterdays tragedy were terrorist whether American or foreign, it doesn't matter. People on this thread need to be American & kill the nonsense of accusing political groups until the proof of the guilty party is brought to light! This is nonsense finger pointing!
and "dumshit"?

Planting rudamentary limb ripping, flesh and organ piercing bombs is beyond "dumb". Vile, hate-filled, and inhumane is more like it.

Repeat as necessary.
If Bush did Katrina and Sept. 11 then Obama did the Boston Marathon.

What is good for the goose...

So why did Obama did such an atrocity at that marathon?

Gitmo should remain open, and we should start using it-in the form of a Russian gulag-for low life dirt bag type lifers "camp".

Plus the medical tent with 50 doctors were right there to treat the wounded, put tourniquets on. Those types of bombs were probably set off by cell phones. Impossible to prevent. It doesn't matter who did it, they accomplished their mission.

<quoted text>Nah, you got me twisted bro. I don't claim no party or prefer one party over the other. Your assumption as to what I call assault weapons is predetermined & wrong. I know what assault weapons are & I also know it only takes as much pulling a pin out of the weapons that border the lines of assault weapons to modify a simi automatic rifle into a fully automatic rifle. The topic surrounding the mass murder events is not what weapon is used the most, or the least. Its about the mass destruction those type of weapons can cause in such a short period of time. These are commonsense things that should be implemented to secure the safety ofAmerican, but you as gun nut refuse to comply with for your own selfish trains. Like I said, what us the reason for assault type weapons? You still haven't answered that question!
Independents are Liberals ashamed to be Liberals but still voting as Liberals!!!

Before you GOP clowns get cocky, remember your chimp was warned by CIA Director George Tenet of an impending attack six weeks before 9-11 struck.

Tenet's report contained FBI references which mentioned suspect activity which could be viewed as preparations for hijackings.

And what did Chimpy do in response?

Nothing.
You mean Bill Clinton?

Did you read the memo?
